First Things First (Paperback)
The updated edition of the Stephen R. Covey classic that has sold millions while launching the time management revolution—now with a new Introduction from the author. An astonishingly successful blockbuster whose ideas formed his first “habit” of The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People, First Things First continues to change the way readers organize their lives. Traditional time management suggests that working harder, smarter, and faster will help you gain control over your life, and that increased control will bring peace and fulfillment. But Covey and his coauthors, drawing on the first real breakthrough in time management in years, apply the insights of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to offer new solutions to the daily problems of struggling with ever-increasing demands of work and home. Rather than focus on time and things, they emphasize relationships and results, favoring effectiveness over efficiency. Offering a principle-centered approach, First Things First empowers readers to define what is truly important, to accomplish worthwhile goals, and to lead rewarding and balanced lives.
